Periods. Need some advice.

This is a bit grim so sorry

My last 2 AF's have been quite different. At the very begining of it I pass alot of clots which I have never noticed before. Obviously I do pass them but normally notice around day 2/3.

My AF came yesterday evening and this morning I felt a bit weak and very bloated, more than normal. I did get completly hammered last night I might add but was not suffering with any hangover symptoms like I can do. Dh thinks that may have caused the clots. I don't agree at all.

Has anyone else had this or can anyone offer any advice? I can be a hypocondriac at times but these last 2 periods especially this one isn't like normal.

if they're not normal for you then you should see a doc. That would sound perfectly normal to me (remember my bramble jelly thread)

I have clots too Nbg, I wouldn't worry too much!!! I always suffer with bloating too, thats what I hate the most of all because I look about 5 months pregnant and that is no word of a lie!!!!

I also get terrible pmt in fact I have it now because I have been shouting at the kids over silly things today and have felt quite upset about it.

Maybe it might be worth a trip to the Dr's then.

I know that most people get clots but I never really see them IYKWIM. It's every time I have been to the loo and they're there.

I've actually seen them in the bath, sounds disgusting I know!!!! Don't really worry me though.

I sometimes get a sharp pain straight up me whilst I am having my period, it feels like I have sat on something very sharp and very long

You've put me at ease now, thanks!

I get so panicky over some things, it's ridiculous.

I'm a worrier too!!! Worry about my dp the most though when he gets ill I think he could die at any moment, all sorts go through my head!!!

One bloated clotter sat here too! I've found my AF has changed since having DS. Have you stopped BF/ come off pill etc etc at all recently?

I think it's worse when I'm on my own. If dh was here I don't think it would bother me that much.

I really need to get a grip sometimes and get some perspective, lol!

Oh god I worry so much when dp is not around....when I am in my own company I seem to panic at every little noise I hear on the baby monitor. We still have one and our children are 3 and 5, dp insists on it but I find it makes you more jumpy!!!

hi Nbg sorry to be personal but are you and dh trying for a baby?? I had this once when dh and I were trying for our first and I think I may have had a miscarriage as it was so bad. If you aren't and you feel they arent normal then go see your G.P. take care.
